How to Test Makita BL1830 Cordless Drill Battery

July 16th, 2018

Ways to Test Cordless Drills and The Power Tool Batteries?

Mr Warren Greentree , working as a Power Tools Investigator and Researcher share following tips:

A good way to test different cordless drills would be to operate them side by side doing the exact same task and see which one does it better and or that you prefer using. If you don’t want to go to all of that trouble you could just read a tech review that compares them. Usually the more expensive power tools are the best ones but you may not want to spend so much money and not need all the functions of an expensive drill.

HTC One Mini Announced With 4.3-Inch Display

July 19th, 2013
Looking to cater to those users that prefer smartphones with smaller screens, Taiwanese handset maker HTC today unveiled the HTC One Mini with a smaller 4.3-inch display. The rival Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini also packs a 4.3-inch screen, while the flagship HTC One has a 4.7-inch display.

HTC One MiniOther hardware specifications for the HTC One Mini include a 1.4 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, HP 484170-001 Extended Life Battery, LTE connectivity and the infamous HTC UltraPixel camera. While these tradeoffs and the lack of NFC are present, HTC still believes it is a “no compromise” experience.

Android handset makers continue to release a myriad of smartphones with various features and price points, with the goal of targeting as many consumers as possible. Samsung has led this initiative with the Galaxy S4 and its S4 Mini, S4 Zoom, S4 Active and Google Edition running stock Android Jelly Bean.

Top 10 tips and tricks unlock Galaxy S4 new power

June 26th, 2013

Samsung’s Galaxy S4 is the most feature-packed smartphone on the planet. With both Android 4.2.2 and Samsung’s own extensions, this powerful, popular device can be customized in dozens of different ways. That’s one of the reasons we’ve given it a slew of Editors’ Choice awards and 4.5-star ratings across a bunch of different carriers.

10 Galaxy S4 Tips and TricksNot all of the Galaxy S4’s features are obvious. You may have heard about Group Play, Smart Stay, and WatchOn, but that’s only the beginning of the unusual powers of this super-smartphone. These 10 tips and tricks will hopefully show you something new and will give your Galaxy S4 even more wow.

Setup Tips

Switch from an iPhone or BlackBerry. Samsung’s Smart Switch PC app will transfer contacts, text messages, wallpapers, the call log, and other data over from an iTunes backup of an iPhone or a BlackBerry Desktop backup of a BlackBerry, so your new Galaxy feels more like your old phone.

Make it easy. The Galaxy S4 is so full of settings and options, I can understand how some people could get stressed out. That’s okay! Try Easy Mode instead. Go to Settings > My Device > Home screen mode > Easy mode to dramatically simplify the home screen.

Don’t go over your data cap. Do you have a limited data plan? Go to Settings > Connections > Data Usage and you can set both your monthly limit and when your device will warn you about reaching it. When you hit the limit, your cellular data will be turned off to prevent overages. To make even more of your limited data, download the Onavo Extend app from Google Play, which compresses the data you use.

Audio Tips

Customize the audio for voice calls and music. One of my favorite secret Galaxy S III features has returned on the Galaxy S4: the ability to tune in-call and music audio to your own hearing. Different people have different levels of bass and treble they can hear. Hit the Call button, then hit Menu and pick Settings. Scroll down to Personalize Call Sound, and pick Adapt Sound. Pop in some headphones and follow the prompts for your own custom EQ.

 

Get rid of that horrible bloop noise. Why do Samsung phones make a “bloop” noise every time you touch the screen? Do you hate that? I hate that. Go to Settings > My Device > Sound and turn off “Touch sounds” for a quieter life.

Display Tips

 

 

Use the phone with gloves. Go to Settings > My Device > Display > High Touch Sensitivity to turn on a touchscreen mode that works when you’re wearing gloves.

 

 

Jump to your favorite apps. Put your finger at the far upper right hand corner of the lock screen and drag left. Now you can jump into a list of favorite apps without unlocking your phone. You can customize the list, too.

 

 

Customize your shortcuts. You can customize both the “quick settings” which you see when you pull down the window shade from the top of the screen, and the shortcut icons at the top of the camera app. I like to replace the screen rotation toggle with Airplane Mode, for instance.

To pick your quick settings, go to Settings > My Device > Display > Notification panel. Press and hold on the setting you want to move into the top group, then drag it into the top row.

To customize camera shortcuts, go into the camera app and tap the gear at the top of the screen. Then press and hold on the gear icon at the top left. If you want to replace one of the shortcut icons, press and hold on the new icon you want to move into place, and drag it to the top bar.

 

 

Get all the shortcuts. Are five settings shortcuts just not enough? From any screen, swipe down with two fingers. You’ll see 19 different feature toggles.

 

 

Keep a close eye on your battery. Rather than the multicolored battery indicator, how about something a little more precise? Go to Settings > My Device > Display and pick Display hp 484170-001 battery percentage. Now you’ll be able to see exactly how much battery power you have left at all times.

HTC One Android Smartphone Software Update Rolling out in Europe

April 25th, 2013

HTC released the latest update for their flagship smartphone, HTC One featuring camera, audio, and HDR improvements. Despite the competition with Samsung Galaxy S4 and Sony Xperia Z, HTC continues to devote innovation to their devices.

Owners of the international version of the HTC One are reporting that an OTA update is currently being pushed to devices in Europe. The new software version is 1.29.401.12, which makes improvements to the phone’s camera, audio, and system stability, among other things.

The update is still large for these changes, sizing up to 200MB on your device and currently being pushed to devices in Europe. Owners can select the system update in the Settings menu containing all the information regarding the upgrade and option for later download. Make sure to create a backup file for safety reasons.

United States and the United Kingdom owners of HTC One are not yet confirmed if this update will reach their devices anytime soon. No word yet from U.S. network carriers of having the same update code with the European model.

HTC Zoe gets sound quality improvements, and the camera gets ‘parameter fine-tuning.’ The Beats Audio ‘sound experience’ has been improved, and the HTC One gets location service updates. System stability and miscellaneous improvements, along with bug fixes, round out this software update.

The new flagship smartphone will also offer additional key features including 4MP rear-facing camera, Blink Feed, and HTC Zoe imaging software.

Amazing Gadgets for 21 Century Life

March 28th, 2013

Strange to think isn’t it that a mere fifteen years ago, technology was nowhere near as well advanced as it is today. Many modern devices simply didn’t exist or if they did, they were underdeveloped concepts and ideas yet to see the light of day.

Yet here we are in the twenty first century with some items that we probably only ever expected to see in sci-fi shows. While teleportation and time travel may well be vastly out of reach if possible at all, we still have some amazing gadgets that truly define our technological tastes in the early part of this century. Here are five top gadgets that are seemingly essential to twenty first century life.

062712-NEXUS-TABLET-004edit

1.      A Smartphone

Whether you favour Apple or Android, the chances are that you have one of these nifty little devices tucked away in your pocket. The mobile phone has evolved from a huge, monochrome device to an all singing, all dancing, smooth and sleek smartphone.

Packing more memory and hard drive space than most people’s computers back in the good old 1990s, the smartphone can be used to do practically anything. Whether you want to record the latest TV shows, switch out the lights in your home or check your pulse – there is an app to do pretty much everything you want.

Smaller than a paperback book and potentially smarter the smartphone is the top device on most people’s list of essentials.

2.      A Laptop or Macbook

Again, if you prefer an Apple product or are not fussy, laptops are immensely useful not only for work but their portability means that you can do just about anything online – no matter where you are.

You can sit in a cafe and type your latest screenplay or sit in the park writing an essay or if you wanted to sell your macbook and buy yourself another piece of technology; you can do all of this and more using online recycling sites like Music Magpie.

3G Tablet Android

3.      Tablet PCs or iPad

Even more portable is the tablet PC or iPad. Harking back to the statement about sci-fi devices; in the 1990s we watched films where people ran their fingers over touch screen devices and smiled fondly. It was the stuff of dreams.

Well, now this particular dream has become a reality and you can scarcely move around on a train or bus without seeing passengers laughing at the latest comedy shows or preparing an important presentation. The tablet PC has come on leaps and bounds and the most exciting thing is wondering what is going to come next.

4.      3D TV

Years ago, 3D films meant donning a pair of ridiculous looking glasses and while the glasses may have changed a little, 3D images have changed a great deal more. At the cinema or even in your very own home, 3D films are a true delight to behold.

Nintendo 3D Console

5.      HD Games console

A far cry from the heady days of Space Invaders and Pacman, today’s games consoles are packed not only with dazzling graphics but with components such as the Kinect and the Wii remote so you can get involved physically, leading to a truly interactive experience.

Bulk buy Surface RT and Pro tablets from Microsoft available now

March 25th, 2013
Microsoft’s new commercial website can only be accessed by employees, partners and volume licensing customers
Microsoft has launched a new website for volume licensing customers to bulk buy its Surface RT and Pro tablets.

The commercial website, which was first spotted by Mary Jo Foley from ZDNet, can be accessed by Microsoft customers with volume license agreements as well as Microsoft partners and employees.

It enables volume licensing customers to purchase Surface RT and Pro tablets as well as accessories and extended support plans, such as third-party warranties.

Businesses without a volume licensing agreement will also be able to order multiple Surface tablets, even though Microsoft has hinted that processing any deals may take longer.

“Lead times for delivery and order requirements may vary depending on inventory,” it reads on the website’s Commercial Order page. “If you do not currently have a volume licensing agreement with Microsoft, there may be additional processing time to setup account and credit terms.”

What with recent estimates putting Surface sales at just 1.5 million units and with slow Windows 8 growth expected up to 2017, this is good news for Microsoft and marks its latest attempt to do battle with Apple.

Apple is the market leader when it comes to tablets in enterprise and although it doesn’t have a progam of its own for bulk buying iPads, it does offer the volume purchase program for rolling out paid and free apps into business.

what you need to know to get started with Google Keep

March 22nd, 2013

Get started with Google’s new note-taking app Keep

Google just made an announcement introducing Keep, its new note-taking service. Keep is currently available for devices running Android 4.0.3 and up, or through the Google Drive Web site. Notes will automatically sync between the Web site and the Android app.

After installing the Android app you’ll be prompted to select the Google account you want to use with Keep. Once that’s done, you can begin keeping notes. There are four different methods you can use to enter a note:

  • A quick note directly from the text box on the initial screen.
  • Add a checklist by tapping on the check mark icon.
  • Create a voice memo by tapping on the microphone. All memos are instantly transcribed, keeping both the audio and text in the note.
  • Add a photo as a note by tapping on the camera.

At any time you can add a checklist to an existing note by tapping on the menu button and selecting “Show Checkboxes.”

While viewing a note you’ll be able to assign it a color by tapping on the color palette at the top of the screen. The colors will come in handy when trying to organize your notes, but as it stands now, you have to change the color manually for each note. It would be nice if you could create categories and automatically assign colors based on those categories.

You can also add a photo to any existing note by tapping on the camera along the top of the screen. Any photo you add has to be taken at the time you add it; you can’t add previously snapped photos from your Gallery.

Once you’re done with a note you can archive it by swiping in either direction across the note.

To rearrange notes you simply tap and hold on a note and drag it to where you want it. You can change the layout between multicolumn and single-column view through the menu.

There are two widgets included with the app. The first widget will place a shortcut bar to create notes with, and will let you scroll through your existing notes directly from your home screen. The second widget is only a shortcut bar. Should you be using an Android device running Android 4.2 or later, you’ll be able to add either widget to your lock screen for quick access to your Keep entries.

The Google Drive page for Keep is pretty straightforward and mirrors the basic functionality of the Android app. You can add, edit, archive, and delete your notes with just a few clicks.

The combination of various note types is nice; a checklist for shopping, photos to help you remember something, and voice notes for when you can’t type a long note. But if I’m supposed to be adding reminders to the app, then why can’t I set alarms for reminders? There’s some work to be done still with Keep before it’s going to replace other task management and note-taking apps.

Best BlackBerry Z10 Smartphone Usage Tips

March 21st, 2013

First device to sport the new BB10 operating system, the BlackBerry Z10 is a brave new start for the company formerly known as RIM. The familiar keyboard is gone and in its place is an iPhone-like design, a 4.2-inch screen and an entirely touch-driven interface. It’s not the first time that a BlackBerry handset has gone completely keyboard-less, but it’s arguably the biggest change in the company’s history.

Change can be a headache, especially if you’re a seasoned BlackBerry user. There are an awful lot of differences in the latest version of the BlackBerry OS, and that means a generous helping of tips and shortcuts is in order.

1. Type faster

BlackBerry phones are famous for their physical keyboards, and even though the Z10 omits this iconic interface, it’s no slouch when it comes to text input. The on-screen keyboard is bursting with cool features and the way in which it predicts your next word is uncanny. During typing, if the word you’re looking to spell is predicted successfully, simply swipe upwards on the relevant button and it will be inserted into the message you’re creating.

If you’d rather the suggested words appeared above the keyboard rather than directly over it, go to Settings > Language > Input > On-Screen Keyboard. Select In-Column in the Text Prediction Display settings.

2. Take a screenshot of the display

If you fancy taking a snapshot of what your Z10’s screen is currently showing, simply hold down the Up and Down volume keys at the same time. The image will be magically deposited in the Pictures folder.

3. Get connected

The BlackBerry Hub does exactly what it says on the tin — it’s the centre of the Z10 experience, and will be where you spend most of your time. You can add an email address, which also syncs with calendars and contacts, but it’s also possible to link up social networking accounts such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. To add more accounts, tap the ‘…’ icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen and then select Settings > Email Accounts.

4. Turn your phone into a clock

Swipe down from the lock screen to activate the clock. This also suppresses all notifications, so it’s a handy feature when you don’t want to be disturbed. To put the phone back into its normal state, simply swipe up or down on the display.

5. Activate voice control

Android has Google Now and iOS has Siri, but the Z10 isn’t to be outdone — it has Voice Control, too. You can access this feature by holding down the Mute button for two seconds, and then command your phone using nothing but your dulcet tones.

6. Take a photo from the lock screen

It’s possible to take a snap without even unlocking your phone. Simply hold your finger down on the camera icon for a few seconds and it will open up, ready for that impromptu photo of your friend accidentally colliding with a lamp post during a frantic BBM conversation.

7. Turn your phone into a USB storage device

Android owners will already be aware how handy it is to have a phone that doubles as a means of storing and transferring files. The Z10 offers the same function, but you’ll need to make sure it’s enabled correctly before you go plugging your Cellulari DUAL SIM ANYCOOL into the nearest PC. Go to Settings > Storage and Access and select the appropriate USB storage option — you can pick Windows or Mac, or alternatively you can allow the phone to auto-detect the OS it’s trying to communicate with.

8. Finding application settings

Struggling to find the settings for the application you’re currently viewing? Try swiping down from the top of the screen — you’ll find that it often reveals additional settings, help guides or other info about the current app.

9. Hide the keyboard

Want to see more of the screen but can’t because the on-screen keyboard has popped up? Simply swipe down the screen with two fingers and the keyboard will dock itself, offering you an unimpeded view of the display. You can also activate the keyboard at any time by swiping with two fingers in the opposite direction.

10. Find your phone if you lose it

Everyone has those days when you’re about to leave the house and can’t find your phone. Where is it?! Thankfully, the Z10 has BlackBerry Protect. You can enable this feature from the System Settings menu and once it’s switched on, you can use your computer to track the location of the device.

11. Preview your last photo without opening it

You can quickly get a better view of the last image you took with the camera — just hold your finger in the corner of the thumbnail that appears in the corner of the display, then drag to expand it. This means you can look at the photo without having to leave the camera screen and wait for the image viewer application to open.

12. Take the perfect picture with Timeshift

Timeshift takes several snaps of a single scene and allows you to pick the best one. It’s especially handy when you’re taking photos of people, as it means you can avoid problems like blinking eyes or mis-timed smiles. To enable Timeshift, just tap the camera icon when you’re in the camera application and then select the leftmost symbol.

13. Check your battery as a percentage

That battery icon in the top corner of the display is all well and good, but sometimes you need actual numbers to get an idea of how much juice remains in the tank. It’s perfectly possible on the Z10, but the process is rather long-winded. You’ll need to visit Settings > About and then change the category from General to Hardware. The battery level will be shown as a percentage.

14. Make the screen easier to read

Not everyone is blessed with perfect 20:20 vision — if we were, we’d all be fighter pilots competing for the Top Gun trophy — and it’s for this reason that so many phones come with Accessibility options built-in, which cater for those with impeded eyesight. On the Z10 you can enlarge the font to make it easier to see by going to Settings > Accessibility > Display Settings.

15. Select which messages appear in the BlackBerry Hub

If you’re something of a social butterfly and have loads of Twitter followers, Facebook friends and LinkedIn associates — not to mention a full inbox — you might want to be more picky about which messages appear in the BlackBerry Hub to avoid going totally insane from all the content flooding into your phone. From the Hub menu, tap the ‘…’ icon in the bottom-right corner and select Settings. Then pick Hub Management and toggle the accounts you wish to receive notifications from.
